Johannesburg - The Department of International Relations and Cooperation on Tuesday declined to comment further on the current impasse between the Botswana government and businesswoman Bridgette Motsepe-Radebe with minister Lindiwe Sisulu saying the matter is "subjudice."
Sisulu recently met with Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi during her visit to the neighbouring country upon the request of President Cyril Ramaphosa.
According to Sisulu, the pair reached an agreement regarding the debacle around Radebe saying the matter was an isolated issue that has nothing to do with the relation between the two countries.
"When we read about it in the media, we became very concerned and thought we should convey to the people of Botswana that the government of RSA has very good relations with them and this has nothing to do with media reports," she said.
Sisulu added that Botswana had taken a decision that Radebe, who is the wife of Energy Minister Jeff Radebe, the sister of businessman Patrice
Motsepe and Ramaphosa's sister-in-law must obtain a visa if she wants to gain access into the country.
